Pray I never be ashamed when it comes to confessing my faith.

There is different ideas about prayer floating around. Some say if your not getting your prayer answered you don't have enough faith. Some say if your not getting your prayers answered your paying for the wrong thing. Some say if your not getting your prayer answered then just keep praying about it. Some say if your not getting your prayer answered then your will in not in alignment with God's will. Some say your sin is blocking God. Some say God helps those who help themselves. Some people just give up and become Atheists. I gotta wonder, if after all these long years God isn't answering my prayers of need, then perhaps He didn't answer my prayer of salvation either. My prayer life always feels like a battle zone. Me trying to manipulate God by saying all the "right" things. Confessing all the right things and asking for help with all the right things. And then hoping that just one more thing I've been needing to be "right" with him will come true for me. Sometimes I think I should just die.

Praying is like air, something we are all commanded to do often. Praying often helps with issues by God giving us answers or signs when we pray to Him. God's will to be done should be our prayers. Our prayers come true the closer we get to Him. After awhile His desires become our desires its amazing .

I don't know. You seem to think your closer to him then I. hmmmmm Well, according to C.S. Lewis the Screwtape Letters, First God Helps the new Christian along and then He gradually takes his hand away, as the Christian learns to walk on his own.

Walk on his own? God never leaves us. I'm just a vessel He uses me how He pleases. My best advice for you would to be patient and stop stressing over earthly things. Colossians 3:2 keep your eyes on things above not on Earthly things. God bless brother .

Some older more mature Christians will tell you that as you get closer to Jesus the devil starts attacking you more. Hence things can get harder. It's how God teaches you. He doesn't pull you out of hard times but rather walks with you through them. But that not the popular view of most Christians these days, they seem to think that if you just keep your eyes on the lord more then things will get easier. I don't know and I don't care, all I know is things are hard for me. I try not to judge other people's lives. Key word try. I assume if they say their life sucks, then it probably does.

I'm being tempted to abandoned my faith and become an Atheist, then die.

Yeah you will get attacked but God is still walking with you. Being a christian is the hardest thing I've ever done but also the most rewarding. Knowing who you are and whose you are is important. Don't believe the lies of the devil. I feel like you are letting that liar get to you. Don't let your circumstances differ you from His promises. You are free my brother
